Christ Church won both the upper and lower secondary divisions of the Have Sum Fun Mathematics Competition held at Duncraig Senior High School in March. The competition, run by the Mathematical Association of WA (MAWA), is an exciting mathematics initiative that uses a quiz night format.

Head of Mathematics Jan Honnens said the School entered six teams across the two divisions in which teams of six students race against the clock to solve four intense rounds of eight challenging problems.

In the upper secondary division for Years 11 and 12 students, Christ Church finished first, fifth and sixth. In the lower secondary division for Years 8 to 10 students, the School finished first, third and fourth. The winning team members were:


Upper Secondary Division  
Alexander Chua Year 12
Liam Kearney Year 12
Simon Swan Year 12
 Brandon Afiat Year 11
Nicholas Lim Year 11
Brendon Wright Year 11
Lower Secondary Division  
Joseph Brough Year 10
Nicholas O’Callaghan Year 10
Thomas Broadbridge Year 9
Thomas Waring Year 9

Mr Honnens said he was delighted with the boys’ performance in the first of the schools’ mathematics competitions for the year. The first prize-winning team members were invited to present their trophies to Headmaster Garth Wynne at an assembly at the end of Term 1.
